Perfectly designed for ZF’s successful TraXon automatic transmission
DynamicPerform, the new clutch module that pairs with the successful TraXon automatic transmission, will bring innovative and popular ZF features to the construction vehicle segment. It is perfectly suited for special vehicles and mobile cranes with three to five axles. Designed as a wet starting clutch for heavy vehicles, DynamicPerform transfers the engine output through the multidisk clutch integrated into the module. The clutch disks are cooled by continuous circulating oil, which protects the clutch system from overheating and enables nearly wear-free and longterm maneuvering even with high friction energy. This prevents downtime and helps to considerably extend the availability and the service life of the driveline.
The multidisk clutch DynamicPerform has an integrated control unit for the cooling oil circuit. For this component, ZF has developed its own temperature model software for the unique needs of heavy-duty vehicles. Using pressure and temperature sensors, critical driving situations can be monitored and optimally controlled so that the multidisk clutch is always engaged in a safe range.
Customers benefit from greater efficiency and lower maintenance costs; while drivers experience a clutch which is now easier to engage.
TraXon, the automatic transmission, was developed to live up to future needs: More performance with less fuel consumption and more application diversity with less customization effort. The solution: A single basic transmission was designed for different vehicles and applications and can be customized individually by utilizing optional modules.This modular transmission system opens up new dimensions in terms of performance, economy, environmental compatibility, and comfort – exactly where it is required.
